With winter well on its way out, and the first hints of spring in the air (hello, random 50 degree days), we can’t help but think about shedding heavy down jackets and trading them in for lighter layers and the great outdoors. And what better way to head out of winter hibernation mode and into spring than with your favorite workout -- and a cute outfit as a little extra motivation?
Whether you’re heading to a pilates class, a 5-mile run, or a high-intensity interval training (HIIT) workout, it’s always essential to pack an outfit that moves with you while training -- sweat-wicking fabric, flatlock seams that don’t irritate your skin, a perfect Goldilocks-in-training fit. Even better, an outfit that brings you from your workout to brunch with your girlfriends at noon -- in style.
This season, get fit and look your best while checking off all your personal health and fitness goals. After all, waking up at 6am on a Saturday looks a whole lot better when you have a workout outfit you can’t wait to wear to that boxing class or yoga. To help you put together the trendiest gym-ready outfits, we’ve curated our top picks for the athleisure aesthetic.
Patterned Crop Top and Leggings
Your workout is all about bettering your mind, body, and spirit, so pick a top in your favorite fun pattern and pair it with simple high waisted black leggings. This outfit contours all the curves of your body, while elongating your torso and legs (who doesn't love to look a little extra tall?).
Solid Tank Top and Patterned Leggings
Adding a little color to an outfit instantly reminds us: Winter blues are gone, and it's time to add a splash of color to everything to celebrate a new season and kickstarting healthy habits. Patterns -- from subtle to crazy colorful -- are a great way to make a workout outfit unique and playful.
Zip-up Hoodie and Leggings
A thin, casual zip-up hoodie is the perfect way to transition your workout outfit from gym to anything you have planned before or afterward. And leggings, of course, are the Superwoman piece of any woman’s wardrobe that takes you from a round of squats to brunch at your favorite restaurant in town.
Sports Bra and Leggings:
Whether it's hot yoga or pilates, sometimes less is more: our trusty cute sports bras and leggings pairing is a combo that does double duty: it's all about confidence and having an outfit that's about as easy and breathable as can be.
Breezy Cutoff Tank Top and Shorts:
Breezy tops and shorts are just as comfortable and fashionable as their more form-fitting cousins. A loose cutoff tank top layered over a cute sports bra (we love when the sports bra peeks through), with a slightly high-waisted pair of athletic shorts, and you've got a killer Cool Girl outfit that you can easily wear to run errands all day after your workout.
Knotted Tank Top and Leggings
It’s slightly fitted, but relaxed all at the same time. A simple knotted tank top with leggings is a slight twist (no pun intended) on the basic tank top and leggings go-to. The pulled together, yet casual staple that, makes for the perfect Je Ne Sais Quoi athleisure outfit.
Let the countdown to spring begin, starting with a rotation of athleisure that will have you pumped for a run in the park, boxing, crossfit, or simply running around town to meet up with friends. These pieces will have you looking as good as you feel.
